    Hi Vikrant,

    You hv to add a Mail Server entry in the mds.ini for every repository that uses workflow

    Mail Server=mail.domain.com

    or U can try by just giving IP address of ur Mail Server.

    Check this blog:

    Hi Vikrant,

    The mail server details are entered in the MDS.ini fiel and not the mdis.ini file.The mdis .ini file is for automatic importing through MDM Import server.

    In the mds.ini file you need to mention the mail server name.In case this does not work you need to mention the Mail server IP address.

    Also take note that the mail server is accessible through the MDM server and there are no security or firewall issue.Clarify this with your basis team.

    Kindly Go through this following link :

    http://help.sap.com/saphelp_mdm550/helpdata/en/43/e0615f82b40a2ee10000000a11466f/frameset.htm

    Navigate to MDM workflows->MDM workflow engine->Notification

    Hope It Helped

    Thanks & Regards

      Hi Vikrant,

      As far as I know,the Mdis.ini file is the system configuration file that determines the settings to be done for enabling automatic Importing the parameters to be set in the mdis are:

      [Global]

      Version

      Server

      Interval

      Verbose1

      Log Dir

      SLD Registration

      [Repository_Name]

      Chunk Size2

      No. Of Chunks Processed In Parallel1

      Login

      Password

      PasswordE

      Log Protocol Transactions

      Inter-Chunk Delay MS3

      There is no option to set the mail server details here.

      However in the Mds.ini file we have:

      Mail server:

      Mail SMTP time out:

      These parameters will enable the mail settings for sending mail through MDM.

      I may be wrong, but this is what the sap guide talks about and also the blog speaks about the settings required in the mds.ini file

      If theres somthing different you've done, we can discuss it futher

      Hope It Helped

      Thanks & Regards
